For those of you who don't know, I have been acting like the Twins have been,"playing," everyday and doing the color commentary over the games and it has been received very well so far. Below is the Game-Thread for todays game and all other broadcasts can be found at my twitch channel as well as highlights (see below).
The Twins look to find their footing, (22ER in last 10 Innings) and even the series against Cleveland. Meanwhile Cleveland looks to continue their red hot April and go for the 10-game winning streak!
Where to watch.
Cleveland:Mike Clevinger 0-1. 3.86 ERA, 11.2 IP, 6 K's
Minnesota: Jake Odorizzi 0-2, 9.35 ERA, 8.2 IP, 10 K's

1. The Indians look to continue their red hot start and go for their 10th win in a row.
2. With a 6-1 record on the road and 1-3 record at home, the Twins lean on Jake Odorizzi to try and even the series and bring life back to Target Field.
3. Carlos Santana making an early bid for AL Player of the month in April while the Twins hope for the bats of Nelson Cruz (14 K's in 44 AB's), and Miguel Sano (.121 BA, 1HR, 3RBI), to awaken after a slow start.
I will be updating Twins Daily with more stats soon as well. Hope you tune for game two of the, "Battle for the AL Central."
